Title: Basic white crackers
Yield: 100 Servings
2 c All-purpose flour
1/4 ts Salt
2 tb (1/4 stick) butter or
1 c Milk
Salt for the tops (opt.)
Preheat the oven to 325~ F. 325~ F 20 to 25 minutes In a large bowl
or in the food processor, combine the flour and salt. Cut the butter
into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Slowly mix in
enough of the milk to form a dough that will hold together in a
cohesive ball. If necessary, add up to 1 additional Tablespoon of
milk. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions for rolling. On a
floured surface or pastry cloth, roll the crackers paper thin. They
will look almost translucent. If desired, lightly sprinkle the tops
with salt and gently roll over the dough with your rolling pin. With
a sharp knife, carefully cut the crackers into 2-inch squares.
Handling them gently, transfer them to an ungreased baking sheet.
Prick each cracker in 2 or 3 places with the tines of a fork. Bake
for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a rack.
Yield: 95-100. VARIATIONS: This basic recipe can be the starting
point for much interesting experimentation. Simply varying flour or
liquid can produce an entirely new cracker unavailable anywhere but
in your kitchen.
